I am installing Timeclock plus 4.2 and everytime I go to start it once I have loaded everything from the disc I keep getting an error that says time clock plus could not be opened.  Do you want to reconfigure your settings?  When I click on yes something with the sql comes up and I hae tried every option.  Any ideas what is stopping this program from opening?

Whats the Operating system that you are using? Why not install the latest version ? you can get it from Time Clock Plus support. This should solve your issue.

right click on the shorcut and choose run as 'administrator' then try to configure SQL.

I figured it out!  In case you ever get a questions like this again, here is the answer:
Step by Step

Open Database Manager.
Highlight the TimeClock Plus database.
Click Edit.
Click Grant Access.
Click New User.
Next to User Id, enter tcuser.
Enter a password and click OK.
Highlight tcuser in the list.
Click Grant.
Click Yes to each role (db_tcuser, db_tcadmin, etc.).
Click OK after reading that the User has been granted access.
Click Close.
Click Close again to close Database Manager.

Usually the default admin is granted all the privileges when you install the database. I assume you are trying to use a different user to access the database who was not authorized. Glad you figured it out. You can ask the op's to close the question and refund the points.

Even after following these instructions I often had trouble at login.  What would happen is the WinRemote program was in my Startup programs so, on login it would run and fail, asking to reconfigure the database.  I found that hte database was always fine and if I simply waited a few seconds before starting WinRemote it would always work.  So, I created a very short .bat file that waits 60 seconds before starting WinRemote.  Now it works fine.
